Personal Video Database

With Personal Video Database you can catalog your movie collection fast and easy. Thought-out user interface and different database management function make it easy to create and manage big movie databases. Powerful filtering, grouping and sorting help you find movies very fast.

The program is expandable with plugins. There are already plenty of plugins included with the installation that can help you retrieve movie information from different internet movie databases or other database formats.

Other important features of Personal Video Database include Loan management, full Unicode support and many more.

But unfortunately it will disappear soon after the end of the contract.

And one original copy of the last version of the program is stored here.

Important Update:
The last oficial version has been the published in by  November 05, 2013 by Nostra, the oficial programer and owner of the program.
After this date, the information providers has changed his pages and, the more important, they have passed to a secure protocol HTPS:  PVD is not prepared for this protocol and crashes with a “IO Handler Value is not Valid” error.

Ivek23, the person that have supported the forum and the scripts programs with a important personal effort, thank you very much, has surrounded this problem installing and configuring a proxy, Proxomitron, but some computer skills are required and the program is no longer portable.

So, we have made a MOD version of PVD with the next characteristics:

  • Portable (run with portable.bat) and not others installations needed
  • Clean of not working providers.
  • Script over plugin preference. This allow open source code of scripts.
  • Secondary, designed for basic use and in connection with KODI.

To surround the HTTPS problem, it has been necessary to make an intermediate download in the file of the pages. This makes HTTPS scripts slower than with the Proxomitron solution, you must choose which solution to use because they are not compatible.
Until Nostra awakens from his Odinsleep, this is our humble contribution to this superb program, the most flexible and powerful movie data base:

(The author strongly recommends using the  SyMenu  free launcher to install and keep updated the portable Personal Video Database MOD version)
